Nature Takes Back an Island

From Dave Brigham:

Located on North Brother Island, in the East River near the Bronx, Riverside Hospital was for nearly 80 years the place where New York City quarantined its citizens, housed World War II veterans and treated drug addicts.

Long abandoned and off limits to the public, the island is now a bird sanctuary. Recently, Britain's Daily Telegraph ran a photo essay of the island and hospital. Check it out.
